Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- Creamed Eggs and Ham
- 5 T. butter
- 1/4 c. flour
- 3 c. milk
- 1 t. salt
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- dash paprika
- a couple dashes of hot sauce adjust to taste
- 1 c. Swiss cheese grated
- 6 hard boiled eggs divided
- 1-2 c. ham diced and cooked (use more or less to taste)
- 1 red sweet pepper diced
- 8 biscuits homemade of favorite store bought, I used Pillsbury
- 1/2 c. cheddar cheese grated
Bake biscuits two minutes shorter than package directions. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top of each biscuit. Continue baking for additional two minutes or until cheese is melted.
CREAMED EGGS AND HAM:
Add 1 Tablespoon butter to a sauce pan over medium heat. Add diced peppers and ham. Saute until the peppers and ham get a nice golden color. Don't over cook, you want the peppers to still be crisp. Remove from saucepan.
To same sauce pan add and melt remaining 4 Tablespoons butter. Add flour and whisk to combine, creating a roux. Gradually add milk and whisk. Continue to simmer, while stirring, until thickened.
To thickened gravy add Swiss cheese, ham and peppers, salt and pepper, paprika and hot sauce. Dice five eggs and add to gravy.
Split biscuits in half. Serve with creamed eggs and ham over biscuits. Dice additional egg and sprinkle over creamed eggs and ham. I like to garnish with a little bit of parsley.
